I've been trying to find a solution to this for over a year with no luck, maybe someone here can help! With Epic EMR I was absolutely in love with the smart/dot phrases. For those who never used this, you would have all your custom templates saved and labeled and to get it to pop up while you're typing you would type "." and then the name of the template. It made notes so much easier and saved so much time. For instance, if I have a 2 paragraph explanation of diabetes and 2 paragraph explanation of a "plantar fasciitis" and I labeled them ".diabetes" and ".plantarfas" when I type ".di" then it would automatically appear and click enter followed by ".pl" and enter, and the templates pop up. My current EMR does not allow me to create custom templates that are too large and does not have this smartphrase feature. Right now I have been copying and pasting from a microsoft word document but it just takes too much time going back and forth. So dragon dictation has something very similar but instead of typing you obviously say the template and it pops up. This would be good but I prefer the dot phrases over verbal commands as I am a fast typer and don't want to pay for dragon. Is there any way to do this? Maybe some downloadable app that lets you program keys or create dot phrases, or an external keyboard with ways to program templates/phrases into the keys?
